Information Required On Local Theft

Local museum, Blyth Battery was broken into over the Easter Holidays and a gold pocket watch was stolen. The watch had been presented to Jas Thompson for his bravery in World War One and was on loan to the museum. It is of great sentimental value to his family who were proud to have it on display in the museum and are now desperate for it back. Anyone with any information about the theft is urged to contact Northumbria Police.image

School Pedals Safety

Bedlingtonshire Community High School has signed up to a cycle maintenance course. Go Smarter, in partnership with Active Northumberland and Watbike in Ashington, is delivering a Velotech cycle maintenance training course. The scheme, which enables school staff to maintain and repair bikes, aims to encourage more pupils to cycle to school. The school staff now have plans for how they will put their training to good use. Andy Allman, from Bedlingtonshire Community High School, is setting up a Career Ride Project where pupils will have work experience taster sessions at employers which they have cycled to. The school is also buying a fleet of bikes which Andy can keep in good working order with his new skills.

Cambridge Residential

Five high achieving Year 12 students were given the opportunity to visit King’s College at Cambridge University for a two day residential trip.

These students left on the morning of 5 April and returned the following evening. During the trip, students were able to speak with current Cambridge students and ask questions about student life as well as the application process. The students toured King’s College and the surrounding areas of Cambridge. They students also got a taste of dorm life as they ate and slept in student accommodation.
In addition, students were given helpful guidance tips about applying to Oxbridge and other universities. The students enjoyed themselves and called the experience “informative and enjoyable.”
This was the third year in a row that students from Bedlingtonshire Community High School were able to team up with students from neighboring schools to make the long journey down to Cambridge. This year, five schools were involved: Bedlingtonshire Community High School, St. Benet Biscop, Bede Academy, Church of England and Ponteland.
